The Atlanta Braves 2023 Season is ready to begin and the Atlanta Braves Foundations is seeking volunteers to help sell 50/50 Raffle tickets during the home games at Truist Park. Through the Atlanta Braves Foundation 50/50 Raffle, one lucky fan walks away each night the winner of a cash prize. Fans purchase 50/50 raffle tickets via sellers inside Truist Park or throughout the Battery Atlanta, or online at braves.com/5050. The 50/50 Raffle is their largest fundraiser, raising crucial funds for the annual grant cycle and our community outreach efforts.Volunteers will either be stationary at a 50/50 Raffle kiosk or will roam the ballpark selling tickets, and engaging with fans on behalf of the Braves Foundation. Roamers will get their steps in, so volunteers need to come prepared with comfortable walking shoes. Volunteers may be asked to work through the 7th inning. Water, and dinner break will all be provided! Volunteers must be 16 and older.What to Expect:Volunteers will arrive at 4:30PM for a 30-minute training session with the 50/50 supervisor. At 5:00PM, they will sit with the 50/50 team during a pre-game meeting.Volunteers typically sell 50/50 until the 5th inning, but are welcome to sell the entire time concluding top of the 8th inning. The game begins at 7:20 PM so this would be approximately a five hour time commitment, from training to the 5th inning. Parking: Free parking has been arranged for volunteers in one of the Gameday Staff parking lots. However, these lots are a bit further from the stadium so the volunteers are welcome to pay to park closer to the ballpark. Please plan accordingly.What to Wear: Volunteers will be provided a 50/50 Raffle shirt, please wear comfortable shoes and jeans/khakis.
